ABSTRACT. Rao remarks that awareness is reportable knowledge of some particular objects, events or phenomena and necessarily assumes consciousness. Nagel observes that it is not clear what one should do about central features of the mentalistic idea of persons which resist assimilation to an understanding of human beings as physical systems. Sterelny contends that the right psychology for humans is a functionalist psychology: our behavior is the result of perceptual inputs, our learning history, and very complex interactions between distinct psychological mechanisms.
